Merci Marylin~~~ I feel so blessed!

I have been gifted again from sweet Marylin~~ Aren't stitching friends the absolute best???

Here is the cutest, BEST SMELLING pillow she stitched for me~ I love the nice Moda fabric on the backing and again, the fragrance is absolutely spell binding.....I wish you could take a deep breath~




Here is a closeup of the darling charm and beautiful trim... It is truly stunning....

She also spoiled me with the most beautiful French kit! It has the lovely red and white threads, ribbons and the button charmpack along with the natural shade linen....  I hope to do this piece justice and finish it into a button box perhaps?....

****MERCI MARYLIN****




 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I have been devoting a little time to Anna Mellet this weekend..... Marylin so graciously sent it to me earlier this month and here is my progress..... The AVAS red silk thread is heavenly to use!!!






So....that's it for today...........here is a view from my stitching chair for the next few days....  My back porch at the beach......................




Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Faye

Marilyn's gift is so beautiful! What is it stuffed with that smells so good? Anna Mellet is coming along well and looks wonderful against the creamy linen.

Hey Faye...just finished catching up on your posts (been absent since late February)! I am love all your recent finishes...they all turned out beautifully. And what a generous friend Marilyn is...and a very talented stitcher as well.

I am so jealous of your beach view...I only live an hour or so from Panama City Beach, FL...but, I never seem to have enough time to go for more than a day or weekend. I am going to have to do something about that and soon, LOL!

Happy Stitchin'
Terri
